1. Diminish Depression

Dance can be a very therapeutic and healthy way for people to channel any feelings they may be experiencing. If you are suffering from depression, dance can give you an outlet for your emotions by using music or movements that you connect to while in a positive environment. 

Being able to express yourself without having to talk about anything can give a sense of freedom both physically and physiologically. As you continue to dance, you will see how easy dancing will become and your confidence and self-esteem will also naturally increase, both on and off the dance floor only helping to further reduce your feelings of depression.

2. Healthy Heart and Lungs 

Dancing is a great cardiovascular exercise. As you continue to dance and notice your strength and grace improving, you will witness an increase in your stamina. 

Your heart rate will stay steady longer and you will not have the feeling of being out of breath as the condition of your heart and lungs improves.

3. Reduce Stress 

When you are dancing, your body is fully in that moment, focused on the music and your surroundings. Being around friends or that someone special to enjoy dancing to your favorite music can help you focus on strictly the moment you are in and aid in reducing the amount of cortisol your brain produces (the hormone that is associated with stress), lowering your stress and tension levels.
